Can you tell me what program is used to create the flip books and flip books beta?

Also, why do some flip books display properly in Adobe Acrobat but not others?

I create flipbooks with this tool: http://www.kvisoft.com/flipbook-maker/. Readers can open the flipbooks in web browsers smoothly.

I think a page flip software with 3D effect helped me a lot in the past. I can easily create a flipbook and simply view in a browsers.

What I'd like to know, though, is what is the name of the program that creates the flip books. And, how can I convert pdf files into flip books like yours.

There are many similar programs, such as the flash flipbook software of 3D Page Flip Standard is a good reference for you. I have seen my friend to use this tool, it's really easy to convert PDF to flip book and make book with 3D effect. 3dpageflip.com is the website for your reference.

we would like you to upload your PDF's to the archive. We are working to expand our PDF deriver so that any pdf uploaded will be able to be a flip book (and embeddable).

Please upload!

I updated the documentation with a "How the Book Reader Works" section that talks about the images that the new flip book uses. http://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/bookreader

The flipbooks aren't created from the pdfs but from a stack of cropped and deskewed images. This image stack is used to create the flipbook, the pdf, and djvu file.

Also, to convert existing pdfs into a stack of images for use with the flip book, you can use ImageMagick or GhostScript.

You can use the ImageMagick 'convert' command to do this:

convert input.pdf page%03d.jpg

You can learn more about ImageMagick at http://www.imagemagick.org/
